Optimism

October 2, 2018

It’s difficult not to focus

On the void

Moreover

And complicating things

Is the common misunderstanding

That we are bound to the glass at hand

 

It might help

To consider that things

Are infinitely better at half

Having begun at empty

Or that

Even having started at full

Half is still halfway there

But even at the best of times

The understanding

That you'll never be able

To fill it more than full

Leaves potential for a positive outlook

Somewhat fettered

 

Don’t lean so much on perspective

Think outside the glass

Mine is never empty

And how full it is

Depends on the success i have

With the continuous effort i put

Into finding a source to replenish it

 

Mine is also never completely full

I make sure of it

When it looks like it's getting there

I trade in for a bigger glass
